Reading Rocks is a literacy program offered by the Learning Disabilities Association of Halton in partnership with the Research Institute for Learning Differences.
We are pleased to offer this program throughout Halton, and to announce its upcoming launch in Hamilton, beginning in April 2019.
Reading Rocks is an 8-week reading program for children and youth 6- 12 years old who require support with their literacy skills. Through this effective instructional program, children are paired together and then matched up with a trained tutor who will adapt a workstation and literacy program according to the specific needs of both children in their grouping. The program focuses on the essential literacy concepts of phonics, sight words, and fluency. Tutors will utilize engaging, hands-on literacy activities to address these areas and build children’s motivation. Each week, children will set goals and graph their success in these areas on their poster board, contributing to self-regulated learning.
Reading Rocks makes reading FUN!
